Job fair for the homeless held in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - A job fair to help out the homeless was hosted on Thursday.

The event was organized by the Owensboro Youth Empowerment Summit after President DeMarcus Curry noticed an uptick in the local homeless population.

He reached out to temp agencies to bridge the gap for those seeking employment in order to get them matched with a job that best suits their skills.

Curry says the group hopes to offer more events like this one in the future.
